    I have been working at Euro RSCG Edge full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    good development for entry level employees. Subordinates are friendly. Casual dress. No weekends.

    Cons

    They'll talk a good game and make all sorts of promises while in turn getting you to accept their low ball offer. Once you are in good then their real personality shows. Upper mgmt and hr couldn't care less about employee feedback to the point of ignoring suggestions and emails completely. Some of the hardest working team members have quit or were let go. The ones who kept quiet and were willing to suck up kept their jobs. Those who offered suggestions on improvements or would question things that didn't make sense are alienated by mgmt and peers, having to answer to rumors with no real substance or proof of legitimacy or just got their walking papers. There's a fake culture of a positive work environment, to hide and avoid real mgmt issues with their employees. Enforcing their power to demean, harass and basically lie to keep things under cover or seem different than they really are. They only care about the bottom line, $$$. Execs, mgmt and hr personnel are the only ones who get title promotions and raises. No raise in 5yrs of employment with good yearly reviews.

    Advice to Management

    Examine decisions made over past years. Listen to consensus, practice what you preach, be more supportive.


  3. Complicated. They are a leader in DRTV but lack in positive leadership

    Pros

    The internal procedures are buttoned up as far as media buying/planning.

    Cons

    Management lacks humanity. Politics are thick and promotions are thin.

    Advice to Management

    Positive reinforcement would provide better morale. The intenal departments lack cohesion. The salary gap between departments is open and unfair. Department managers need to provide regular feedback on performance.
